The TEFL Academy course was very professional, offering me all I wanted to obtain a TEFL. Actually, I have been teaching English for over two decades in South America and I only took the TEFL course because I am back in the West, where a piece of paper is more important than years of experience and common sense. So, with all my experience, I found the course to match my real life experience and leave me feeling that I didn’t need to do it, except for the piece of paper, for I had already been proficient at the job for over a decade! I suppose that is a good thing though.

The course included all the areas that I could think off and touched on both teaching methodology and technique, plus the practical requirements found when in the profession.

I highly recommend the course.

I took up the Level 5 TEFL 168 online course with The TEFL Academy, though it’s worth noting that the provider offers 20 hours of practical teaching guidance too.

The course does a good job at easing you in through its logically constructed sequence of units. The information is thorough, clear and easy to navigate through. The three assignments required to pass this course are reasonable and the tutors are very approachable for help and guidance. The feedback was always useful and relevant to my question, therefore I cannot fault instructor competency or lesson plan guidance in the slightest. This course delivers what it promises, and is very satisfying to complete.

Overall, this is a course I would highly recommend. I signed up to the course with various apprehensions such as credibility of the course and whether or not I’m suitable for it. Needless to say, I came out with a fascination in language and a burning interest in teaching. On top of that, this is a genuine certification that is widely recognised and respected.

I have recently received my Level 5 TEFL certificate (168 hours). I have really enjoyed the course, both the enrolment weekend and the online content. I have gained so much and it has given me a lot of confidence in myself and enthusiasm for trying and learning new things. I don’t say this lightly having dropped out of university. The course has allowed me to go at my own pace and work at the same time. I much much MUCH prefer this way of studying! It has opened up many new potential opportunities for me moving forward. I am most grateful.

I recently completed my level 5 168 hour tefl course. I recommend this course with The TEFL Academy to anybody that wants to teach overseas. It is intensive and gives you a clear insight on everything you will need to be a successful foreign teacher. The units are clearly allocated and content specific. The feedback from the tutors is excellent and helpful, especially when I needed clarity on how to do my assignments and how to correct my mistakes. This course has made me grow academically and professionally and I would like to thank The TEFL Academy for this.

I would personally recommend the Level 5 TEFL Course (168 hrs).

I have recently completed and passed the course and couldn’t have enjoyed it more!

The content is easy to follow, evaluation is aligned with the information provided. Feedback is very detailed and it shows that your training matters.

If you have any question the support team is super nice and replies fast.

Even though it’s a mostly online course, it’s designed in a way that allows you to practice and get feedback in a very precise way.

Highly recommended!

I have just completed (and passed with a Distinction) the Online TEFL Academy Level 5 (168hr) course. The online course material content was professionally presented, clear and concise and easy to follow and understand. There were more than enough “revision activities” during each Unit and the End of Unit Tests were comprehensive. The 3 Assignments were very interesting, not too difficult to compile and the positive feedback from the marking Tutors was excellent. On the few occasions where I required minor assistance from the Academy, I received prompt responses either via e-mail or telephone, The ladies in Ireland were always more that willing to help. Thanx ladies, much appreciated. The 2 day classroom course in Durban (1 and 2 Dec ’18) was absolutely fabulous and the Teacher (Tanya) kept the class lively, entertaining and interesting (attending these 2 day classroom courses is a MUST, in my opinion). Before I selected the TEFL Academy for my course, I reviewed numerous TEFL, ESL and CELTA online course providers (online and communicating via telephone) and categorised and ranked the TEFL Academy as the BEST ONLINE TEFL COURSE PROVIDER in the marketplace. I CAN highly recommend the TEFL Academy Level 5 online course to anyone who is intending to study to become a Certificated English Teacher. Thanx again TEFL Academy for a great experience. Best Regards ………. Ken Packett (South Africa).

I have recently completed the combined Level 5 TEFL Course (168 hrs). The course content was easy to understand, all lessons provided a full understanding of English language teaching. Some parts of the assignments were challenging but I received valuable feedback from tutors. Customer service was excellent, they reacted within several hours. I can recommend the TEFL Academy.

I have recently completed the TEFL Level 5 course (168 hours) and found it to be a hugely enjoyable, and quite challenging experience. There is a fair amount of hard work involved, but there is great online support and plenty of information and guidance available. The weekend classroom course was a highlight, giving an opportunity to interact and compare notes with other students, as well as get a flavour of presenting a lesson to real people. The constructive criticsm of my assignements given by the tutors was extremely helpful in pointing me (a complete beginner when it comes to teaching) in the right direction. No online course can provide real teaching practice, and there is still a lot to learn, so I see my completion of the course more of a starting-point than a destination. But it is a good place to start. I can recommend it.
